War service remembered during Maryborough Anzac Day parade

AS THOUSANDS marched the streets of Maryborough for the annual Anzac Day parade on Monday, others stood to the side watching quietly, reflecting on their own wartime service or that of someone they loved.

John and Sandra Hallam stood near the Cenotaph on Bazaar St watching the school children finish marching in the parade.

John was wearing two sets of medals.

One set was his own, earned during his service in Vietnam.

The other set of medals were worn with pride on behalf of his father, who fought in the Second World War.

Sitting in his mobility scooter, John Green also wore his medals and watched the parade.

Beside him was Steve Seinor, with his medals on display.

The two fought alongside each other in the same unit during the Vietnam War.

Mr Green said watching the parade meant a great deal to him.

"It's good to see so many turn out," he said.
